The Top 10 Metal Love Songs

In honor of St. Valentine's Day, we wanted to offer you a list of love songs. But, these aren't the ordinary love songs about boys falling in love with girls, or girls getting their heart broken. The following heavy metal songs represent the madness and chaos of love's firm grip on the human psyche. These songs all include tales and stories of torment, romance, lust, sexuality, jealousy, betrayal, the question of evil and the nature of sadomasochism, and even, the unspeakable acts, of the sexually/criminally insane. Most of all these songs are passionate and full of that spirit and energy (and rage) that only love can conjure up.We now present Metal's Top Ten Love Songs.
